A decision to implement Stage 2 water restrictions in Euroa and Violet Town has been made by Goulburn Valley Water following months of dry and warm conditions.

Restrictions will be in accordance with GVW’s Bylaw 512 and came into effect from Thursday 11th April and will remain in place until further notice.

Storages in the Euroa system, which supplies both Euroa and Violet Town, are sitting at about 22% and demand continues to be high due to warm autumn weather.

Improvement works underway this year on the original Abbinga storage dam are also affecting storage levels.

Strathbogie Shire CEO, Steve Crawcour said Council is working with Goulburn Valley Water to reduce its operational water usage and use alternate supplies of water, including raw water, where possible.

“We have had discussions and assistance from Goulburn Valley Water to look at where we can reduce Council’s water usage, as well as ensuring the shire’s essential assets are maintained where possible,” Mr Crawcour explained.

Young people aged 14-19 from Strathbogie Shire had the opportunity to attend the Youth Politics Camp.

This year, 29 young people from Alpine, Benalla, Indigo, Strathbogie and Towong Shires attended the camp in Harrietville for three days at the beginning of the school holidays.

Coinciding with Victorian Youth Week, the camp focused on the environment, which is a hot topic of conversation, particularly among young people.

A partnership between Alpine, Benalla, Indigo, Strathbogie and Towong Shire, this camp is the only one of its kind in Victoria and was a YACVic Rural Youth Award finalist in 2018.
